Continuing our open innovation initiative, we are now making the sensor HAL for the 2011 Xperia™ phones available as open source. So if you’re an advanced developer, you will now be able to access and configure the sensors of a 2011 Xperia™ phone on a deeper level. For example, you will be allowed to optimise the way the compass is used in a custom ROM.
In the good feedback we received on our previous open initiatives, we have seen a lot of requests for us to open source these files. And now, we’re happy to provide that opportunity. This is not part of open source archives that we are required to publish, it simply something we want to do for the community.
